    Well, I thought the Gators would be a little bit higher. Interesting what some Teams have a ton of money for their football programs.

    This seems more like it, considering it's an article about annual revenue, versus the net worth of a team.

    How do they even calculate the net worth of a team. Ray's link is a pay link so I cannot see how they calculate that.

    Beat me to it :D.

    This list explains why programs in Madison, WI, Iowa City, IA and South Bend, IN are this competitive on the field. Helps being 2+ hours away from major population centers (Chicago).
